As the confusion continues within the Goodlyfe camp on who has the rights to release and use the late Moses Ssekibogo Nakintije a.k.a Mowzey Radio’s music, the government has stepped in to protect the late singer’s property.

When Mowzey Radio left the face of the earth on 1st February 2018, we did expect that there would be chaos related to who owned the rights to the late singer’s intellectual property.

It all did not seem like enough trouble until recently when a section of the Goodlyfe established their intentions to hold a listeners party for ‘Moses The Great’.

The party which was slated for 25th January at Jose Chameleone’s newly established DNA Lounge was to also remember Radio’s birthday with a silent disco that same night.

This was however halted after the Administrator General’s office issued a warning to anybody intending to release any music content belonging to Radio.

Irene Bayiga, the Assistant Administrator General said that the Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB) received information about some individuals’ intentions to release musical works of the late singer.

She barred anyone from the general public, all media houses, platforms, and entities from releasing any music belonging to the late.

The letter from the Administrator General’s office

It should be noted that before his death, Radio has recorded many tracks and has compiled more than two albums which awaited mastering and release.

Sources from Goodlyfe reveal that the album was halted due to selfish interests from the remaining half of the Radio and Weasel duo to use the deceased’s intellectual property to his own advantage.
